Web pages slow in loading after installing Mcafee

  NO.6 21:06 23 Jan 2007

I am on AOL and since installing the new Mcafee security suite(2007) all the web pages take about 5 minutes to load. I have run spyware and virus scans and everything is fine. I never had this problem before (I was on Mcafee 2005) and I have not changed anything on my laptop at all. Any ideas this is really a pain in the a**!

It is McAfee. I've had this problem on 3 PC's. Turn off anti-phishing - open SecurityCenter - click on Internet & Network - click on configure and disable anti-phishing. This should speed up your browsing.

There is quite a lot about this on the McAfee forums.

Done that' still the same.......But I have noticed that if I use Firefox the web pages load quicker. I thought AOL and Mcafee had some kind of deal where their stuff would work with each other!!!

Chuck Mcafee away and use AVG + Firefox

My snags were with IE7/IE6 and McAfee not with AOL and McAfee. It would seem that you have to turn off privacy service and spam killer.

I have used McAfee for years but the 2007 product has been poor in my opinion and I doubt if I will renew and instead will look elsewhere.

Me too........the 2005 edition worked well (if it aint broke don't fix it!)
